HONOLULU (KHNL)- A nationally televised PBS show is in Hawaii to shoot some episodes. "Antiques Roadshow" shot a story at Kamaka Ukulele today, but the big story will come on Saturday when 6,000 people head to the Hawaii Convention Center to get their own antique pieces appraised.

This is the show's first time in Hawaii. Executive producer Marsha Bemko is hoping to see some fantastic relics of old Hawaii. "I'm sure we're going to see koa wood, royal Hawaiian objects. I imagine we'll see vintage aloha shirts."

The crew is shooting 3 episodes in Hawaii to air sometime between January and June 2007. They'll firm up the air date this fall and post it on PBS's website when they have decided. Check back frequently at pbs.org/antiques, and click on "Broadcast Schedule" on the left side of the screen. The air dates are listed by city.

Generally speaking, Antiques Roadshow show airs on PBS every Monday at 8 p.m.
